Therefore, the Minister of Transport, pursuant to subsection 6.41(1) (see footnote c) of the Aeronautics Act (see footnote d), makes the annexed Interim Order No. 5 Respecting Flight Deck Occupants.

Conflict

6 If there is a conflict between the Canadian Aviation Regulations and this Interim Order, this Interim Order prevails to the extent of the conflict.

EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Interim Order.)

Proposal

Interim Order No. 5 Respecting Flight Deck Occupants (the “Interim Order”), made under subsection 6.41(1) of the Aeronautics Act by the Minister of Transport, requires that, in the case of two-person flight crews, when one flight crew member exits the flight deck, another authorized person must enter and remain until that flight crew member returns. Under the Interim Order, the authorized person’s role is limited to unlocking the door manually, should it become impossible to unlock through other means.

This requirement applies to Canadian airlines (those conducting passenger-carrying service under Subpart 705 of the Canadian Aviation Regulations [CARs]) and foreign airlines (those conducting passenger-carrying services under Subpart 701 of the CARs) operating in Canadian airspace. This Interim Order does not apply to

The Interim Order, in accordance with subsection 6.41(2) of the Aeronautics Act, ceases to have effect 14 days after it is made unless it is approved by the Governor in Council. Following approval, the Interim Order, in accordance with subsection 6.41(3) of the Aeronautics Act, will remain in effect for one year or until regulations having the same effect are made.

Objective

This Interim Order is intended to prevent a lone flight crew member with malicious intent from purposely denying entry on the flight deck to the second flight crew member or other authorized personnel.

Background

On March 24, 2015, a Germanwings Airbus A320 crashed in the French Alps, killing all 150 people onboard. On March 13, 2016, the French investigative authorities (BEA) released their final investigation report into the tragedy. The BEA concluded that the first officer, while alone on the flight deck, deliberately modified the autopilot settings and intentionally set the aircraft onto a collision course. The investigation further determined that he locked the flight deck door and prevented the captain from returning by ignoring his requests for access via key pad, cabin interphone and knocks on the door. The first officer was also unresponsive to the 11 communication attempts from both civil and military air traffic controllers.

The Germanwings tragedy brought to light risks associated with having only one flight crew member present on the secure flight deck. The CARs mandate passenger-carrying aeroplanes to be equipped with reinforced flight deck doors, which must be kept locked at all times from the moment entry doors are closed until they are opened on arrival. The CARs permit flight crew members to leave the flight deck where their absence is necessary for the performance of duties in connection with the operation of the aircraft, is in connection with physiological needs, or if they are taking a rest period and are relieved by other flight crew members. This is in line with the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) requirements.

On March 27, 2015, the Interim Order Respecting Flight Deck Occupants was made by the Minister under subsection 6.41(1) of the Aeronautics Act, and was published in the Canada Gazette, Part I, on April 11, 2015. Interim Order No. 5 Respecting Flight Deck Occupants requires Canadian air operators and foreign operators operating in Canadian airspace to have an authorized person present on the flight deck while one of the flight crew members is absent. It also lists the persons who are “authorized” to access the flight deck in this situation (e.g. an employee of the air operator, a Department of Transport air carrier inspector, a flight engineer).

Implications

The Aeronautics Act authorizes the Minister of Transport to make an interim order where it is necessary to deal with a significant risk, direct or indirect, to aviation safety or the safety of the public. The Interim Order mitigates a risk to aviation safety associated with having only one flight crew member on the secure flight deck.

Canadian airlines and foreign airlines operating in Canadian airspace have been required to implement a “2 persons on the flight deck at all times” procedure since the issuance of the first Interim Order on March 27, 2015. In addition, Canada’s major airlines have had this measure in place when travelling to the United States since 2002. The second person’s role while on the flight deck is to unlock the door manually, should it become impossible to unlock through other means.

On March 27, 2015, the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) issued a Safety Information Bulletin recommending that airlines ensure at least two crew members, including at least one qualified pilot, are in the flight deck at all times. The EASA conducted a review of this measure earlier this year by reaching out to the aviation industry, seeking information on the safety benefits and risks introduced by this measure to ultimately determine the effectiveness of the “2 persons on the flight deck at all times” measure. The review also sought to identify additional risks stemming from the introduction of the procedure and other equivalent mitigating measures. Transport Canada, like other civil aviation authorities, is awaiting the results of this review, which are expected in late June / early July 2016.

Harmonization with Canada’s international partners is very important, particularly for the airline sector, as it operates within these jurisdictions and, in certain circumstances, has to comply with the requirements of these foreign states. Transport Canada has been working diligently on this file over the last year with its international partners, including participating in the investigation lead by the French investigative authority as technical expert in medical certification. The final accident report was released on March 13, 2016. While the report contains 10 recommendations, the BEA did not issue any safety recommendation pertaining to the “2 persons in the cockpit” rule, instead referring to the EASA work, which is still pending.

Therefore, building on the work done by the BEA, Transport Canada intends to pursue further assessment of the existing risks before moving forward with proposed regulatory amendments to the Canadian Aviation Regulations. While Transport Canada conducted a Risk Assessment in June 2015, the scope of which was limited to situations during non-critical phases of flight and assumed that two pilots would be present for the critical phases of flight, Transport Canada will further evaluate the inherent risks resulting from the Interim Order (e.g. removal of one flight attendant from the cabin possibly for the remainder of the flight; the CARs do not mandate mental health assessments for other company employees having access to the flight deck, such as flight attendants). Transport Canada will also review the results of the EASA review, which will inform its position.

Consultation

Transport Canada officials have consulted with the Air Transport Association of Canada and the National Airlines Council of Canada representing Canadian air operators conducting passenger-carrying operations, as well as with major foreign operators.

On July 24, 2015, Transport Canada published a Notice of Proposed Amendment to consult stakeholders on the Department’s proposal to codify the requirements found in the Interim Order. Stakeholders strongly encouraged the Department to conduct further assessment of inherent risks before proceeding with regulatory amendments and the Department agreed.
